Lost Socks - PSA
I decided to not do the metaphor thing. It was wildly tempting when I saw the prompt at Weekend Wordsmith this week. Decided to be silly instead...
Lost Socks. A Public Service Announcement
They are alone. Mismatched, Scared. Unable to find their way back.
They are the lost socks. Socks carelessly thrown into the washer without regard for the dangers awaiting socks in the wash: Slipping under the agitator, Falling behind an appliance, Stuck to velcro - or worse... inside a pant leg not to be discovered for months to come.
Don't let this happen to YOUR socks. Bag 'em up. Stick them together.
Remember: One thoughtless, callous act on your part Can part your socks Forever.
